How to Find an Internship
An effective way to learn about internships is through the Career Center's online-resources and to meet with a Career Center staff member.
Additionally, our Library offers a wealth of print materials, and we’re available to help guide you through the binders, texts and other materials.
Staff members are also available for one-on-one appointments to work through the phases associated with finding an internship—from brainstorming ideas, to contacting employers, to filling out paperwork, to completing an evaluation.
